Post-G20 Public Summit: Battle for the Economy - www.battleofideas.org.uk The wide variety of protests organised against the G20 at the start of April might suggest a lively public sphere engaged in serious debates and action in relation to economic life, but how healthy is political activism today?

Post-G20 Public Summit: Battle for the Economy - www.battleofideas.org.uk Are we culturally disinclined to embrace productive economic activity? For too long we have parroted the mantras of the Knowledge Economy; maybe we took policy-pundit Charlie Leadbeater’s script, Living on Thin Air, too literally. The dynamism, social aspiration, educational excellence and visionary infrastructural projects on show in China and India might remind us why productivity matters...

Saturday 20 October, 10.30am until 12.00pm, Fountain Room Battle for the Arts The title of the Arts Council's major 10-year vision, 'Achieving great art for everyone', captures the contemporary drive to increase audiences for the arts. But the associated literature reveals a palpable defensiveness. Over the past 20 years, arts institutions have become obsessed with their lack of reach. Despite the queues outside blockbuster exhibitions and the popular appeal of West End theatre, arts policymaker...

Battle of Ideas 2012, 20 October, Barbican, London There are plenty of reasons, it seems, to champion social media. For some, it played a key role in the Arab uprisings, allowing the disparate and the silenced to give voice to their struggles. In the West, too, social media is deemed increasingly vital to public life, be it President Obama's high-profile tweeting strategy, or influential Twitter- or Facebook-driven campaigns around certain issues...

Battle of Ideas 2012, 20th October, Barbican, London It has become a maxim of Western society that citizens should be equal before the law. A legal system that discriminates against minorities is widely recognised as a symptom of an unjust society. But does this mean the law should be used to make society itself more equal? Since the Equality Act 2010 has been on the statute books, a number of cases have shown how the law is being used to challenge and punish discriminatory attitudes, in the nam...
